The Memphis Grizzlies struggled through their first two playoff games, but the franchise's best regular season isn't a distant memory. Strong player performances keyed a team-record 56 wins and 24 road victories.
Interestingly, they had to ship away their leading scorer to help a few players realize themselves. Jerryd Bayless, Mike Conley and Marc Gasol saw their offensive performances improve after Rudy Gay was packaged.
Also, starters' performances were buoyed by great defense, as they were in the previous two years. Four Grizzlies starters ranked in the top 17 in defensive rating and in the top 15 in defensive win shares.
For the most part, bench players turned in pleasant season performances.
